There are many aspects of molecular and cellular biology which interest me, especially the processes underlying cellular migration and differentiation, but also the molecular basis of disease. Through this program I would like to deepen my theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular and cellular biology and hope to gain an insight into different areas of research.
